Providence Completed.

5 May 2015

We had a good race in Providence. It was a lot smaller than the last, well, all of my half-marathons. Probably 2500 people running it. A lot of times, only one lane of the road we were running on was closed for us. Our intention for this race was to take it easy and enjoy it running with my friend Goldlust, who was running his first race. My calf has been barking at me for a few weeks now, and BB’s leg has been bugging her too. So we were planning on a straightforward run of 13.1 miles, and then omelets and massages.

And that’s exactly what we did. The course had a lot of long rolling hills, including some challenging ups for me; hills that, while not steep, felt like they lasted a LONG time. I’m glad I did some hill training. We finished in 2:25:36, and I am very pleased with that. It was a gorgeous day to be running. And they handed out a really snazzy medal.

    Congrats… Nice place Providence in my globe trotting days I got to stay there a couple of times and passed through it many times on I95 – often stopping off for a quick walk about if I had time

      Thanks! I really like PVD. Boston feel without the Boston douchebaggery.

    Congrats on another good race. I prefer the small races. This sounds like a really nice one.
